So, it's just a replacement on the stocks? Also, anybody of you guys know where I can get my wheels chromed? I thought, it would look good on red :D

NO!!!! PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! DO NOT CHROME THOSE WHEELS! Why do you want to ruin the handling and performance of your bike by making your wheels heavier. Please leave that beautiful bike alone and just enjoy it!

Okay, I didn't realized that chroming the wheels will add a considerable weight on it. I'll leave it as it is. It looks dull though. But then again, I'll take your word for it.

Didn't mean to jump on you like that :) , but after you've learned a little more about motorcycles you will learn that wheels have a HUGE effect on every aspect of performance. Adding just a little bit of weight to these has a magnified effect because the weight is unsprung. I understand you want to have shinier wheels, but leave that to the Hardley-Ablesons.

Hardley-Ablesons, I got that :D Don't worry, point well taken! I'm an open minded person, specially if the comment is coming from a person, more experience than I am.

stupid question

if you want chrome wheels go for it, that bike has enough power to spin them chrome or not. chrome does look way better, or if you want to use elbow grease you can probably polish the existing ones.

i definitely like the look of polished or chromed wheels compared to the painted ones, i just don't have the ambition to do it. :lol

"Considerable weight"? Are you planing on having them chromed like 20 times on top of each other or something?

No, just regular chrome. Why, are there several types or ways of chroming a wheel?

There are different options with chroming but I was being sarcastic. It is insane to say that chroming wheels adds "considerable" weight to them unless a few oz is considerable to you.
